In case you missed it…yesterday, Dan Nava become the second player in major league history to hit a grand slam on the very first pitch of his first major league at-bat. It truly made for the culmination of a great story. A kid that was a walk on in college, then cut. He became the equipment manager just to stay with the team before transferring to junior college to continue to play baseball. He wasn’t drafted but signed with an independent league team where he made an impact and was signed by the Red Sox for $1. Supposedly they never even saw him play. A great story of perseverance, determination and hard work.
Come to find out he was given advice from radio broadcaster Joe Costiglione before the game. Joe shared a story and a message:
“Swing at the first pitch, because you’ll never get it back.’’
Think about that message.
